Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers allocated almost $38 million for schools to ensure that students have access to a high-quality, modern and affordable, general secondary education.
The decision was approved at a government meeting on Wednesday, Ukrinform reported.
The New Ukrainian School is a key program of the Ministry of Education and Science, whose main goal is to create schools that will provide students with not only knowledge but also the ability to apply them in life.
“We have set sufficiently high standards, and now the question is: who should do it? We have identified the funds that we allocate, and the local authorities have to do it. Therefore, partnership with local authorities and responsibility are of great importance,” the Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said.
According to him, this will enable grade school students to get better knowledge. “We will allocate 1 billion hryvnias (almost $38 million) to provide Ukrainian children in first through fourth grade with new equipments and quality education,” Groysman said.
He further stated that the government will not stop at this and education reform will be carried out in a consistent manner. The authorities have already raised salaries for teachers, preschools are under construction, and new approaches are being implemented so that children can access modern technologies,” he added.
